Ah yes, refreshing action! More mecha action! At least this helps to establish why the Sarashiki sisters are the best characters of the show (other than Chifuyu). But, disappointing for the preview, looks like we are back to filler..

(I wonder if we are going to see Chloe this season)

Can't we technically consider LN8 as fanfic filler?^^

Preferred the Golem design from the first season.

Oh I noticed something with the ED this episode. Kanzashi joins the rest of the girls in singing the ED.

No questions.

That aside, why another original episode >________>" the only thing I can see out of the next episode is Cecillia somehow poisoning everyone.

Interesting notes: Kanzashi firing her missiles and the hi-5 between Charl and Laura were taken from the OP lolol. also that scene with Yamada-sensei and Chifuyu in the operating room... is it just me, or is that copy-pasta'd over from one of the season 1 episodes?

For such an important place, it seems to lack proper security.

Good episode, finally something grand that I've been waiting for. But, does this episode solidify Ichika's position as the weakest out of the core group?

Laura, Charl, Rin and Cecilia were able to destroy their opponents without suffering significant damage. Tatenashi, with Houki's help, was able to finish her enemy fairly quickly (though quite reckless I might add). Kanzashi was able to hold her own against that unmanned IS. Meanwhile Ichika got captured by that machine and tossed around like a ragdoll.

What I would like to see is Chifuyu dominate in an IS. I wonder whether we'll ever get to see that on-screen. Last but not least, so Kanzashi is included in that ending pic but Tatenashi not? Oh, well.

Me thinks she is indirectly present through her IS specs on the back left side.
And tbh the photo would be wasted coz she would have to be in the front before everyone.... As a matter of fact let's remove everyone and just take a picture of her : D

Ichika : "sometimes I lose too..." (what the heck?! You are rarely win!!!)
I don't really like the scene when Tatenashi and Ichika console Kanzashi... it's too loong and boring (you don't need to define a human in slow motion.. just mention you love your little sister, Tatenashi-san!)
it's little sad to see how Ichika having a hard time to kill the enemy while the other girls managed to handle them well (Tatenashi looks weaker in this episode as well... why?)
and congratulations Kanzashi for joining the harem (Tatenashi is on the route)
hopefully next filler episode will be entertaining

the supposed all powerful student council president gets owned by her own attack... yeah no. that was too obvious as something to move along the plot for the little sister.

^This. Although I can handle him being the most useless one of the lot and his only redeeming quality is that he can operate an IS for now. If he wasn't such a huge dumbass when it's comes to females, so the less Ichika in the episode the better. Which made cringe when he showed up in that the dream like scene...

Also I'm wondering if the only security the school has is an invisible dog fence...?

I guess its becouse all ichikas attacks drain his own shield >_> sword, setsura attacks while the girls have equipment that doesnt do that they have bullets in those weps and can equip their IS with lots of stuff.... while ichikas equip slots are closed duo the one-off ability (that is generally useless on him)

Its like with Kanzashi this ep. she saw the core but her bullets run out (she could have stomped on it with her leg but nah)...

what is really disapointing is that Houki has the most advenced IS (that has speed, armor, shields, 2powerfull swords that can do close or range attacks, even got another bow like weapon)... and she was not able to handle even 1of those alone while she should be able to destroy all of them herself

her IS is hax becouse of the ability of recovering energy... if that was given to ichika he would be at least a little threat... but if he runs out of energy he has no weapon to fight with ;/

but still I just dont know if after losing that 2nd shift look (besides studio going the easy road on drawing)... did it lose its other options too like speed or setsura attacks.... I mean ichika is dense as hell... when he was blocking the IS in the pit with his sword... he could use setsura close range attack (the energy claw)....but again he didnt and is mainly using his sword and gets his ass kicked.... so for what sake does he have it if he doesnt use it..

sadly next ep looks like a filler... and I have a feeling it will be about girls learning that the shortest road to guys heart is throught stomach so girls go and try to prepare a ultra delicous dish that will make ichika fall in love with them (maybe after learning what his favourite food is) dont have a clue if this was in novel or is it anime only stuff

It's Anime-only, as well as the Plays and Festival.
By the way, 9/10 due to Battle and Kanzashi!
